After leading the Friday prayers of more than 20 lakh Umra aspirants, Imaam-e-Kaba told that Khadimul Harmain Shareef Shah Abdul Aziz is undertaking various modification and construction works to provide conveniences to Hajj and Umra aspirants. Soon electronic umbrellas, each one with a surface area of 40x40 ft will be installed at the outer area of Masjid Haram Shareef akin to that of Masjid Nabawi, to protect namazis from extreme heat. It must be noted that 500 such electronic umbrellas have been installed in Masjid Nabawi, Madina Munwarra.
Besides this in the eastern side of Kaba the old structure of Masjid Haram Shareef is being demolished and the mataf (the circumambulation area around the Kaaba) area is being expanded. Huge cranes have been installed at the courtyard of the Grand Mosque. Nearly 200 ft construction work continues at swift pace around Safa and Marwa. The construction work will be completed before Ramadan.
